My daughter got engaged last September. Of course she needed a planner to be organized about creating the wedding of her dreams.

PURPLE TRAIL WEDDING PLANNER REVIEW

This is a wedding planner for the bride who wants every detail included. It will make you think of things you didn’t even know you needed to consider.

It is beautiful and durable and will serve as a keepsake forever.

The pages are a nice thickness so that there will be no bleed-through from your pens.

It is nice the way they include note pages throughout the planner.

It should accommodate anyone planning a medium to large wedding. For a smaller wedding, it might feel like overkill.

My daughter chose a hardcover version and there was a bubble on the top of the front cover. I contacted Purple Trail and they offered to replace it if we sent it back to them. My daughter didn’t want to go to the trouble though.

Because you can personalize the cover it seemed a little redundant to have the front page with the same information. It would have been good to have contact information on this page in case it gets lost.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON THE PURPLE TRAIL WEDDING PLANNER

My daughter is very happy with her Wedding Planner Book, Personalized Wedding Planner, Bridal Planner, Custom Wedding Planner” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener sponsored nofollow”>Wedding Planner by Purple Trail. She loves how complete and thorough it is. She said she would definitely recommend it to any bride who wants a beautifully made planner that will cover every detail of the big day and more.

She has a blog all about micro weddings. If you are considering that type of event you should check it out, Plan A Micro Wedding.
